about

Master of the Game is a rare kind of album these days. Pianist Geoff Eales’ new record will delight and inspire in equal measure fans of Esbjörn Svensson or Brad Mehldau or those who check for Bill Evans or even Bud Powell. Old virtues and values filtered through a modern sensibility? It doesn’t matter how you put it. What matters is the music and these eight tracks played with passion by Eales and his trio of Chris Laurence and Martin France have a lot to tell you. Geoff Eales has learnt a lot and he’s waited to say it. And he has one other thing that many young pretenders don’t – authority. It comes from knowing what counts in life. Eales doesn’t just play jazz; he tells stories for your own imaginings. Sometimes hard-bitten, at times abstract and even surreal, at others quiet and rich in sentiment – these are tales for this or for any time. Master of the Game will surprise you. More than that, it will remind you of the magic that is Jazz.
